Option 1

Preparation for S-AEIS

  • Candidates who did not pass this time and were not accepted may consider taking the S-AEIS exam (make-up exam) in the coming year.
    Applications for the S-AEIS will open in early January 2023, and the exam will be administered on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 and Wednesday, February 22, 2023 (tentative).

X Not recommended

Public schools have difficult placement tests, long wait times and relatively few spots for international students to ensure priority for local students.

Option 2

Private Institutions

  • San Yu Adventist School and St. Francis Methodist School, both are unique private government type primary and secondary schools for children aged 7-16, the only difference is that the type of school is private, the rest of the curriculum, school holidays, etc. are the same as government primary and secondary schools, and also the accompanying policy.
  • Parents with religious beliefs should note that these two private Institutions in Singapore are evenly divided into parochial schools and require Bible study

X Not recommended​

Private schools have a low admission threshold and do not require the AEIS exam. However, there are few places available and the application time is long, so if you fail to apply, you will miss your normal school time. Private schools have lower learning requirements, and the effect of improving English is not high, and a large proportion of students from non-English speaking countries is not conducive to English learning.

Option 3

International School

  • For those who failed in the AEIS, international schools in Singapore are a good option. It is a well-known fact that Singapore International Schools are world leaders in educational resources and most of their graduates can easily get into the world’s top universities.

    Many parents also choose to have their children apply to cost-effective international schools as a transition phase.
    Here are some recommendations for schools that do well in terms of soft facilities and IB scores

  • Tanglin Trust School
  • United World College of South East Asia
  • Singapore Hillside World Academy
  • Dulwich College Singapore
  • Global Indian International School

东陵信托学校 Tanglin Trust School

Tanglin Trust School is a Non-Profit International school in Singapore, established in 1925 to provide a UK-based education for students aged 3-18, opening them up to international perspectives. Tanglin currently has a total of about 2,720 students, with 740 students in the infant school, 770 in the elementary school and 1,190 in the secondary and sixth form. Although all three schools are located on the same campus, each school has its own separate building and facilities. Although not required as an entry requirement, approximately 60-70% of the students hold British passports. As of May 2014, there are students from as many as 54 countries enrolled at Tung Ling Trust schools. Due to Singaporean government regulations that prevent Singaporean citizens from attending international schools, there are only a very small number of Singaporean students at Eastwood Trust Schools, and only 4% of Singaporean students in the whole of Singapore are enrolled in international schools.

United World College of South East Asia(UWCSEA)  

Founded in 1971, UWCSEA is one of 17 United World Colleges in the world and the first in Asia. UWCSEA has two campuses, the 5.5-hectare East Campus in the Tampines area with 2,400 students and the 11-hectare Dover Campus with over 3,000 students. Despite the school’s size, UWCSEA’s success is built on the success of each student, and it aims to create a broader world impact through its mission. 

UWCSEA embodies everything that United World College (UWC) stands for:
Care and compassion for others, a willingness to take responsibility, and a tenacity to pursue truth.
The United World College of Southeast Asia (UWCSEA) is committed to the mission of “uniting people, nations and cultures for a peaceful and sustainable future. With its diverse background, convenient location, and large alumni base, UWC is recognized as one of the world’s leading international schools, attracting parents and students from around the world, but it is also one of the most difficult international schools in Singapore to get into.


新加坡Hillside World Academy

HWA (Hillside World Academy)

Full IB system school with an emphasis on East-West cultural integration + after-school academic enrichment program

Chinese International School (CIS) was established at the invitation of the Singapore Economic Development Board and with the support of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Singapore. It is the first bilingual IB school in Singapore that is fully IB (Kindergarten – Pre-University) and has a Chinese cultural identity. The school moved to a new location in 2015 and was renamed Hillside World Academy (HWA).

This international school aims to create a holistic environment that nurtures caring, independent, bilingual and high quality international talents.

HWA students achieved an average of 38/45 on the IB exams

In particular, the bilingual program is the highlight of this school.
The language of instruction in Singapore is also predominantly English.

However, in order to allow students who have just arrived in Singapore from China to better adapt and not have problems understanding the curriculum, HWA uses bilingual teaching and has customized Chinese versions of math, art lessons and inquiry units for these students.

Many of HWA’s graduates have gone on to study abroad, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. This includes some of the top universities in the world. IB diploma holders can also apply to local universities such as NUS, NTU, SIT, SMU, SUSS, etc.

HWA students come from more than 20 countries and regions around the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Italy, France, Korea, Japan, etc. The percentage of Chinese students is about 20%.

新加坡德威国际学校 Dulwich College International

Dulwich College International is a branch of Dulwich College that operates throughout the world.

Dulwich College is an independent, day and boarding boys’ school for students aged 2-19 years old, located in Dewey, London, England. A public school, it was originally founded as God’s Gift College in 1619 by Elizabethan actor Edward Allyn, and was originally founded to teach 12 poor scholars. It grew into a large school from 1857 and took its present form of instruction when it moved into its present premises in 1870.

Dulwich International School also has branch schools in Beijing, Shanghai and Suzhou. However, as we all know, Dulwich International School in China only admits foreign students, so you cannot attend Dulwich International School in China without foreign status. Therefore, the closest and most convenient option for Chinese students who want to attend Dulwich International School is Dulwich International School Singapore. Unique International School Singapore is also a branch of Unique International School, which was established in 2014 and caters to students aged 2-18. Depending on the age of the students the school is divided into three campuses: DUCKS (Early Learning Center for Children 2-7 years old), Junior and Senior.

Global Indian International School Singapore (GIIS), founded in 2002, offers education from kindergarten to high school for students aged 3 to 17 years old. With locations in several countries around the world and 2 campuses opened in Singapore, we recommend that students prefer the Smart Campus as it was built at a cost of S$130 million and is known as a super smart campus in Asia.

GIIS has a range of international programs that are popular with students’ parents. These programs will meet the needs of all types of students for further education through theory of knowledge, extended essays, community service and independent student research, while covering a continuous and comprehensive assessment system to ensure that students not only meet performance standards, but also exceed them and improve their college acceptance rates.
